Stirling’s Quarters Renovation

private residence of Army Major General William Alexander

The 18th century masonry farmhouse was the private residence of Continental Army Major General William Alexander, Earl of Stirling. Lord Stirling used this house during the winter of 1777-1778 when the Continental Army camped at Valley Forge, PA before the arrival of Baron von Steuben who aided General Washington in retraining the Continental Army in the spring of 1778. Perryman Building used stucco to blend the original historic structure (finished with exposed field stone and ridge pointing) with newer additions. Hard cement stucco was removed and a lime rich stucco mix was applied to the walls with a lime wash façade.
